Tulane Orchestra?

I was wondering if any of you knew anything about the Tulane Orchestra. I looked on the website but they have no information up at all.

    I found this on the website, which I happened to be looking at today as S is interested in ensembles/private lessons when he starts in the fall.

    I have spoken to the contact person in Music Dept. who sets up private lessons and arranges auditions for ensembles in the fall. If you don't find what you want on the link, and you want a contact in the Music Dept., then PM me.

    I would e-mail the head of the music department, if you have already thoroughly read the department's web site and cannot find what you are looking for. As far as where/how to practice, Dixon Hall has practice rooms and I assume you sign up, with music majors getting preference. At least that is how it works at most schools. There used to be some practice rooms in the old student center, but those went away when they rebuilt it as Laverne-Bernick. There might be some rooms in odd places around campus, but Dixon is the hub of the music program.

    I stopped in yesterday when I was on campus. Dr. Samarov said the auditions for the orchestra will take place next week (first week of school) -- sounded like you just need to stop in early next week to sign up for an audition time.
    You sign up for private lessons via the registration link for your courses (under applied music). You can call and ask for Kathleen Crago (office manager), or e-mail her (kcrago@tulane.edu) if you have questions.

    ok thanks.

    is it hard to get into the orchestra?

    No, I don't think so (assuming you're not a beginner musician). The music department is part of the liberal arts college, as opposed to being a "conservatory." It's open to everyone, whether or not you're a music major.
